ABOUT THESE CLEVER HANDS...
My name is Jo & I live in the leafy outers of Melbourne, Australia. I have been quilt making for 30 years & am all about EPP, machine piecing & using bold colour.
After celebrating my 5.0 birthday, I had a Jerry Maguire moment (no goldfish involved!) & decided to opt out of a very stressful, thankless job & instead immerse myself in more joy. More joy for me looks like many things, but it definitely includes much more time for creativity.
I have been that busy working Mum, who too readily pushed back her creativity,
instead putting everything and everyone ahead of her own needs. I didn't fully understand the value of creativity, and the joy that it brings.
A lot of learning later, I found my way back to my stitching time, and fell for modern paper piecing - fussy cutting, fabulous fabrics & slow stitching. The perfect weeknight, worker bee solution - it gave me the ability to get a little quiet stitching in at the end of each busy day.
However, we quilt makers know that it's not as simple as making time to stitch - right? Maybe there is no fabric shop nearby, or they don't have what you were really looking for, or they close before you can get there... We're busy & we need convenience.
It got me to thinking about what would be the ultimate in quilt making fabric purchasing - what I wished I could wave a magic wand for... and it was this:
a delicious, sampler pack of co-ordinated, colourful, quality fabrics - in an array of sizes, that I could crack open & simply start playing with! Hence, my curated fabric packs...
I do the work for you - starting with a statement feature fabric, then building a vast array of co-ordinating fabrics around it.
My packs are:
curated (I carefully select every piece - if I wouldn't use it, then I won't sell it!)
convenient (you simply choose which one you want & I'll post it to you pronto!)
cost effective (no need to purchase minimum cuts of fabrics that you might only use a small piece of)
colourful (I only do colour!)
& quality (think Kaffe Fassett Philip Jacobs, Brandon Mably, Anna Maria Horner, Cotton+Steel, Tula Pink, Alison Glass, Jennifer Paganelli etc. - no chain store cheap & nasties!)
I hope that my Curated Fabric Packs might help you to reclaim some of your precious creative time, & give you a little more space for some daily stitching bliss.
